CAPE TOWN - Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille is denying reports she attacked the party’s former parliamentary leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko.

Zille&39;s denial comes after the Sunday Times newspaper quoted Zille as saying that she “made” the 34-year-old politician.

According to The Sunday Times, Zille also told a federal executive meeting in Johannesburg that she’d ‘saved’ Mazibuko a number of times.

She’s also alleged to have said the soon-to-be Harvard University student is ‘nothing’ without her.

The controversy follows Mazibuko’s resignation as the DA&39;s parliamentary leader.

Zille took to Twitter to slam today’s reports and said her comments have been distorted. 

It appears the tweets that Zille made earlier have been deleted from her Twitter account.

Meanwhile, last week Zille said that Mazibuko knew she stood no chance of being re-elected as the DA&39;s caucus leader.
